A Multi-Day Course meets multiple times over one or more weeks. Learners join the teacher in live video chat sessions at scheduled times. Outside of these sessions, they can take part in a classroom discussion group and message the teacher directly. Longer courses create more opportunities: real-time activities, engaging projects, and interaction with diverse classmates from other states and countries.
Did you know about all of the benefits solving the Rubik’s cube has?
In order to solve a Rubiks cube you can be of any age as long as you are cognitively capable. This means that if you are a very advanced 3 years old you can do it same as if you are 99 years old with enough cognitive power left to stay in the moment and know what you are doing.
But it is not all about cognitive power because it takes patience and the will. And that’s what makes all the difference. Like everything in life, if you want to be able to do it, you have to dedicate as much as it is needed for you to be able to do it.
Below are just some of the benefits of solving the rubiks cube and speedcubing. You will definitely experience some additional benefits if you are into speedcubing but this is not to say that if you are a puzzle lover who takes its time with solving the cube that you won’t reap any benefits. It depends mostly on what is your approach to this hobby.
Benefits of solving the Rubik’s cube:
It helps with improving memory
It depends if you are solving the cube without any algorithms and guides or using those for help. Either way you will be practicing improving your memory. Especially muscle memory.
This is very useful because you want your muscle memory to be top notch if you are a driver or if you play musical instruments like a piano for example.
Learning the ways of solving the cube improves patience
Once you take the scrambled cube for the first time in your hands it will test your perseverance.
Even the beginner method is not that simple for many people but those who are persistent and patient will manage to learn it eventually. Once you start practicing more complex methods like Roux and F2L it will take even more patience.
It helps become a problem solver
Sure, if you just learn known methods to solve a rubiks cube you won’t benefit much in terms of becoming a better problem solver but if you, as many cubers do, start figuring out your own ways of solving the cube it will help you become more creative with doing things.
It helps with mapping of the things
Learning the algorithms means memorizing step by step moves and in a particular order. There is usually no mistake allowed with algorithms. This will train your brain to memorize and map things in their order.
It keeps the mind active
Like any puzzle, the Rubik’s cube will keep your brain cells active and it doesn’t matter if you are a speedsolver or just a puzzle lover. When cubing, your brain will be active which will keep its cognitive functions in shape.
Speedcubing makes your reflexes faster
If you start speedsolving which is basically trying to solve the cube as fast as possible you will at some point cross 3 moves per second which will sharpen your reflexes.
This is very useful in life and sometimes it can literally be a lifesaver.
I find It that not only are my reflexes a bit faster when it comes to using my hands but also with reading and spotting things with vision. That is because speedsolving requires you to see colors moving very fast and to perform the next move based on the colors moved before.
It will improve your fingers dexterity and agility
Having your fingers more agile and fast has some benefits like being able to type faster on your computer. If nothing else it will keep your fingers in shape and it may help with joint degeneration people of old age experience with fingers.
It is an awesome conversation starter
Most people will be dazzled when showing them the process of cube solving. I love showing my puzzles to my friends and then showing them ways to solve them.
Solving a cube can help break mild addictions
If you are trying to break any addiction giving yourself something to do and keep your hands and brain engaged is usually recommended. Solving a cube is one of the best things you can do to break any mild addiction like nail biting for an example. Just be careful as cubing is quite addictive too.
This type of reasoning is very valuable in everyday life for children, understanding this type of cause and effect is also incredibly helpful when applied to other subjects. Learners will need to have their own Rubix Cube to play with and it can be useful to take additional notes. This class is run over 4-6 sessions and gives the learners time to practice the steps we have learnt and improve. This is a flexible class so does not meet live, there is weekly video instruction and children will be expected to submit their progress to Fundoo classroom in the form of pictures and videos.
